Another Garden Session: Crynant, 13th March

In this session we caught a total of 52 birds. Our Siskin total this time was 35 including 2 controls, that is birds which were ringed somewhere else. We shall wait to see how far they have travelled.
  
We also had 4 lesser redpoll, which is the first time they have been ringed in March in this garden although they have been ringed in April previously. There were three females and a male so it was good to see the difference as the male was coming into full breeding plumage.

Other than 3 Bullfinches, the rest was made up of the usual tits, Dunnock and Robin.

Thanks to Valerie for her assistance.
